Seagal at his best


Marked for Death is by far Steven Seagals best film. John Hatcher(seagal) has just retired from the Drug Enforcement Agency after his partner dies on a case. When a Jamaican Drug Posse marks seagals family for death, seagal realizes that he needs to pay them back, with interest. Seagal, teamed up with a jamaican cop and an old friend of his, to teach the posse that there's just some families that you don't mess with. If you don't like car chases, snapped arms and heads being chopped off, this movie isn't for you. Its's to bad they don't make action movies this great anymore.

The ultimate gun fight film


I often feel that it is a total shame that Hong Kong legend John Woo moved to the United States to start directing; if his Hong Kong magnum opus was any indication, then we might have missed out on some of the best action films ever instead of receiving movies like the dopey Face/Off and the watered down Mission Impossible 2.
Hard Boiled centers on two "hard boiled" cops battling a gun runner. The amazing opening shootout in a teahouse alone easily surpasses the entire action content of most American action movies, with hunderds of bullets and a couple dozen bodies being strewn about within seconds. Woo makes great use of Chow Yun-Fat here as his cop, with a .45 in each hand, quickly and with great visual flair shoots the bad guys to pieces, including an eye opening slide down a stair well. The movie would have been good for the opening shootout alone!
Of course, it doesn't stop being good there. With every sucessive action scene, the body count, brutality, and the visual bullet buffet increases three fold until a stunningly good half hour battle in a hospital that has more gun toting badguys than patients. Woo makes it all come together perfectly, often having elaborate shootouts take place in only a few takes!
If you absolutely can't stand action movies, then by all means, completely steer clear of this one. If you even have a vague enjoyment for any action movies, then hastily put this film at the very top of your wish list and add it to your collection as soon as possible. You'll never regret it!

The Last Game - movie DVD cover picture
First Hand Experience Against C.B. West


Having played against C.B. West I know the dedication those players had for that great coach and that team. The tradition that team has develop over the past 30 years is breath taking! In 9th grade when USA Today ranked West #5 in the nation, and I first saw this team play, there was know way in the world you could have told me this was a high school team. The size, speed, and raw talent of those players were just unbelievable! West was just an unstoppable team all you could do was just watch in amazement. What a coach, Pettine was just top notch! Probably the best coach to ever coach the game at the high school level! What can I say about this movie! If you are any kind of sports fan get this movie! The lesson of football can be emulated to any game! Just go out and get this movie, it is truly amazing! Being a Pennsbury Guy! Go Falcons!(...)

Wonderful


My 2 year old daughter loves this video. She has to watch it everyday, and knows all the words to the songs. I never thought I would find a video that she would actually sit and watch the whole way thru, but she did. The songs are wonderful and she is able to understand the words. She also enjoys the puppets and watches the other kids in the video. I recommend this video to any parent of a child that has a hard time finding videos they will actually watch.

Excellent Addition to the CSI Franchise


I had not watched CSI Miami on TV, but have watched most of the original CSI series. I'm a huge fan of the original. You always wonder whether or not a spin-off can match the original. CSI Miami comes pretty close. The series does start out a little slow with the team's chemistry thrown off by Kim Delaney's role in the first few episodes. However, Miami picks up steam and finishes with some intriguing episodes. The series also develops some interesting storyline which I look forward to following with the release of the Season 2 DVDs.

Another Great 8 Episodes


This season features the acting talents we have come to love in the Oz series. Racial relations have never looks worse than in this make believe prison. Tragedy befalls everyone, even the slightly more virtuous caretakers of the prisoners. The sad fact that they choose to come to the prison every day verses the prisoner locked in for crimes horrible and violent, makes their lives seem rather sad in themselves. Dean Winters still acts viciously, though with a stilted delivery, as the Iago of the Prison. Lee Tergesen, recovers and gets hurt and recovers while contributing/committing two murders. Beacher's slippery slope of ethics, gets worse, while Keller tries to regain his trust. Said's arcing story feels better this season because his pompous dialogue and rage against the system is toned down when he loses his control over the Muslims and "shockly" holds hands with a white girl. The obligatory season cliff hanger feels less like a cliff hanger than a nod to the fact that life goes on. Another riot is set to happen and we'll just have to get the forth season DVD set to find out what happens.

It's Impossible to Watch This Movie Only Once!


This histerical movie has the funniest cast I've ever seen aboard ship (boat). You can ignore the action of the main characters in many situations and just watch what's going on in the background and laugh out loud. The electrician/radio operator is really classic. Every one who's been in the service knows that guy. I'd forgotten how much I missed him. Suberbly directed, editing was right on the button.

Happy Tree Friends - First Blood (Vol. 1) - movie DVD cover picture
OMG! They killed Cuddles! And Giggles! And Petunia!


This sick, twisted stuff is right up my alley! I was somewhat infamous at my high school for drawing stick men having similar
misadventures, so a few of my old classmates might think I was part of the genius behind the Happy Tree Friends. I was not, but it does my heart good to see someone cashing in on this insanity! Handy (who has no hands) really cracks me up because you'll just miss seeing him doing impossible things like building a treehouse or bowling, but now that you are watching him, all of a sudden he's helpless to save himself or his friends from their horrible fate!

Watching this DVD is kinda like watching a medley of Kenny's deaths on South Park. The ones with Flippy the crazed Vietnam vet even have a slasher movie type feel to them.

Yes, indeed , do NOT buy this DVD for young kids. It could be very traumatic. Let them learn on their own what a sick world it is before adding to the distress.

Yugi vs Joey


When these episodes aired on Kids WB I was so excited. Everthing was on the line the money for Serenity's operation and the match that could free the souls of Grandpa, Mokuba and Seto Kaiba. The first part of Best of Friends Best of Duels inculed the song "No Matter What", wich is an aswsome song about Yugi and Joey's freindship(this song is avabile on the Yu-Gi-Oh! Music to Duel By CD). The second part inculeds Maximillon Pegasus's flash back about his wife, Cecelia, the woman in the paints seen in his castle. One thing I love about these episodes are that Yugi and Joey show some emotion(they acutual cry). Of course evey episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! is my favorite, but these episode are special. It's really hard when you have duel your best friend when the stakes are so high. The TV show is way past this, but if you have not seen it you should buy it. Also if you like Pegasus's flash back you should buy the viedo that has the episode "Aftermath" because it inculdes a longer flash back about Cecelia(Aftermath is my very favorite episode). Let the duels begain!
